The most popular pic of Lake Garda on Instagram? Most likely it was taken from Punta Larici, an incredible lookout point overlooking the western shore of the lake. 

The hike to Punta Larici is one of the most beloved of Garda Trentino, especially in the last few years. The view enjoyed from up there is indeed incredible!

Starting from Pregasina, a small village perched on the mountain wall overlooking Lake Garda, Punta Larici can be reached in less than a couple of hours. Punta Larici is a natural balcony above Lake Garda and Limone and offers amazing views in every season and in every moment. 

Attention: the trail between Bocca Larici and Punta Larici is exposed!

Directions

From the church above the car park in Pregasina, follow the forest road to Malga Palaèr (signposted SAT 422) for about one and half hour and you reach Punta Larici, a splendid panoramic point on Lake Garda. At your feet is Limone, a well-known center of the Brescia side of Lake Garda.

Go back along the same path. 

It is possible to get to Punta Larici starting directly from Riva del Garda, along the Ponale road and then continuing towards Pregasina (1.30 h. Ca).

public transportation

Riva del Garda and Pregasina are served by an extra-urban bus line with journeys not so frequent (bus line to Ledro - stop by the bridge).

You need to be wearing the right clothing and take the proper gear when you go hiking in the mountains. Even on relatively short easy outings make sure to take all you need so you don't run into trouble if things take an unexpected turn, for example a storm blows up or you have a sudden drop in energy levels.

What should you take when you go on a hike?

What you should have in your rucksack (for a day trip a 25/30L capacity should do):

  • water canteen (1L)
  • snacks (e.g. mixed dried fruit or chocolate)
  • First aid kit
  • windproof jacket
  • fleece
  • change of t-shirt and socks (in a plastic bag)
  • make sure to wear or at least bring a pair of long trousers
  • hat
  • sun screen
  • sunglasses
  • gloves
  • whistle to attract attention in an emergency

emergency telephone number Mountain Rescue 112

 

Make sure you're wearing the right footwear for the trail and season.  The going can get rough and rocky underfoot and a pair of hiking boots will protect you from sprains.

When wet, a grassy slope, rocky slab or steep trail can be dangerous unless you are wearing the proper footwear.

And finally... Don't forget to bring your camera! You'll need it to capture the stunning views you come across all over Garda Trentino. And if you like, you can share your memories with us at #GardaTrentino.
